Privileged kids beating illegals
25 May 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The beating of an illegal Hispanic immigrant is the case that Anthony Anderson and Jeremy Sisto are assigned to in this Law And Order story. The man isn't dead, he's in a deep coma and on a machine. Still it is a crime that could turn into a homicide.

The investigation leads to the eastern end of Suffolk County and three high school kids who don't look like they've missed too many meals, Michael Drayer, Jordan Burt, and J.P. Serret. Serret's an interesting suspect, his mother is from Argentina. His possible motivation comes out in Linus Roache's cross examination.

The best witness is the victim himself even if it just his presence to testify to his injuries. But our health care system bundles him off to Honduras where he's originally from. Alana DeLa Garza has to travel there to get him back at a cost of travel and maintenance for a comatose man that Sam Waterston's primary opponent uses as an issue.

Another Hispanic male is killed with a similar M/O and the two cases are tried together. An interesting verdict occurs and the end of the episode is not the end of the story.
